Scott Martin joined the FOX23 news team in September 2020. Born and raised in southeast Oklahoma, Scott’s so excited to be covering news that matters to those in his home state.
Scott’s a graduate of the University of Central Oklahoma. “Roll chos!”
Prior to moving back home, Scott’s covered some big stories in Texas and Mississippi.
Most notably, Mississippi’s historic vote to change the state’s flag, removing a confederate emblem. It had been a controversial topic for years, and after prior failed attempts to remove the flag, legislators finally made the historic move to change the state’s flag.
Scott was one of the main anchor’s a WCBI, a CBS affiliate in North Mississippi. He covered President Trump’s two visits to the state, co moderated one of the state’s only gubernatorial debates, and was one of the first reporters on the scene after an EF3 tornado ripped through downtown Columbus, even damaging the TV station.
Scott has a passion for people and loves to share the stories that are important to them.
Outside of the news world, Scott is usually spending time with his family he’s missed so much while out of the state. Oh, and he won’t be seen without his Miniature Schnauzer Moose.
